Stewart Tech: MS Windows Anniversary Update problems (26) Tech: MS Windows Anniversary Update problems 01 Oct 16

Yesterday when I booted up my Windows 10 computer a popup appeared telling me that an update was occurring and my computer would re-boot.
That was the major Anniversary Update for Windows 10. There was nothing I could do but wait over an hour for an incredibly slow update with several reboots. Finally the new version of Windows 10 (ver. 1607) appeared. It didn't have web connectivity and the start button was screwed up. Rebooting didn't fix that. I was stuck with a flawed version of Windows 10

After some attempts to figure out the problem and how to get around it, I finally decided to revert to a previous build. That took another 15-20 min, but I was back to my previous version (ver. 1511) and everything was fine.

There is a hidden Microsoft's Wushowhide tool, which is supposed to stop future installs of updates. I installed this on my wife's computer to prevent her computer from updating. But it didn't work and today her computer automatically started the dreaded Anniversary update. Another hour of updating and a faulty new version and another 20 min of reverting back to the previous build!

How have other experienced and dealt with this problem? I am completely annoyed with MS and am ready to switch to Apple but for the many programs I would have to buy and change to Apple.
